The Wednesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Hump day, so here’s your Hump Day Edition of the Daily BushWhacking…

  • McCain won the Florida primary on the gop side (Giuliani was a DISTANT third), and Clinton “won” on the Democratic side, though the delegates won’t count… though that didn’t stop her from crowing about the victory… which does give the two of them some momentum going into Super Tuesday…
  • Sen. John Edwards, whom I was leaning towards, is going to be dropping out of the race today
  • So is Giuliani… (good riddance. Rudy was banking all of his money and hopes on one state, a disastrous move that cost him a LOT of support. Plus, I think the American people have finally spoken and told him that he can not ride his 9/11 coattails to the White House… don’t let the door hit ya on the way out; on second thought…)
  • Attorney General Michael Mukasey is still planning to refuse to discuss the legality of the “waterboarding” interrogation method when he testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee today… this should end well…
  • While the House easily passed (385-35) the economic stimulus package, it’s not expected to get as easy a passage in the Senate. Why? My response; ego… Maine’s republican Senator Susan Collins says that “President” Bush needs to negotiate the bill with the Senate… (awwwww, does someone feel left out?? Poor babies… screw having to negotiate with the senate, this is a bi-partisan bill that is wanted, and needed, by a majority of Americans and you want to hold it up so the president can negotiate with the Senate?? Give me a break… what egotistical tools…)
  • Congress gave “President” Bush a minor victory yesterday, passing a 15-day extension of a temporary surveillance law that was set to expire later this week… they say it was passed so they could have more time to come up with a permanent fix for the measure. (I call bullshit… once again the DEMOCRATICALLY CONTROLLED CONGRESS kowtowed to a LAMEDUCK PRESIDENT and, while only for 15 days, gave him a victory… when the hell are the Dems in Congress going to grow a pair, realize this president is a lame duck who should not be able to get anything, let alone something this controversial, passed!!)
  • And have we mentioned? That you don’t want to piss-off Methodists? More than a few Methodists are preparing to mount a “last-ditch effort to block” the placement of the George W. Bush Presidential Library, museum and policy institute at Southern Methodist University. How you ask, by forcing a vote at a regional church conference this July… (Nice… though one has to wonder just what kind of books will be in the library section of the building? I can see it now… rows and rows of ‘Where’s Waldo’, ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ and Archie comics…)

Hey, I always thought those "Choose-your-own-adventure" books were pretty awesome.

Also, has Edwards given any word on who, if anyone, he endorses?

Don't forget "My Pet Goat"
